ONLINE: Christ and the Cosmos: The Universe Seen through the Eyes of Biblical Faith
BioLogos President and Voices speaker Deborah Haarsma will present “Christ and the Cosmos: The Universe Seen through the Eyes of Biblical Faith” on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at 7:00 PM (PST). This event is free and open to the public.
“In the last century, modern astronomy has transformed our understanding of the universe, showing it to be incredibly vast, billions of years old, and continually developing. Astronomer Deborah Haarsma will give a visual tour of the cosmos while pondering recent discoveries from the perspective of Christian faith. The scriptures emphasize that the creation of the universe was not only the work of God the Father but also of God the Son: ‘In him all things were made’ (John 1:3). Some see an inherent conflict between the scientific portrait of the universe and the scriptural one, as if only one can be true. Yet by considering science as the investigation of God’s creation, we gain a deeper appreciation of the wonders of the universe, new insights into God’s providential work and the person of Christ, and a deeper understanding of the significance of humans in the cosmos.”
